Where are the Masks?

A message from our owner

I’ve been asked this a few times as I get things up and running: “Where are your masks?”

These are strange times in which we live. COVID-19 has turned everyone’s world on its head, and if I was smart, I wouldn’t launch a store in the middle of this. I might even be crazy to consider opening a First-Aid and Safety store without offering what is possibly the single most in-demand item in the world right now.

This isn’t a mistake.

It is the right thing to do right now.

I can’t in good conscience add to the desperate demand for masks of all types on the front lines of COVID-19. I started this store to support healthcare workers, EMTs and Paramedics, Firefighters, First Responders, and other essential workers of all types. It doesn’t do anyone any good to take away supplies from companies with existing contracts. Those are desperately needed supplies for people who are putting themselves at risk for us every day, and this is my way of supporting them right now.

I will carry masks in the future.

When this passes, and it will pass, I will be here to serve your needs and provide you access to masks for your business continuity plan. Until then, stay home and stay safe.
